Wearing: Silent Theory crop, Jeans and boots c/o Rusty Australia, bag c/o Oasap.
I hate to admit that I’m just as taken with Kylie Jenner as the rest of the world… whether or not her lips are real, not so much- but her style is on point.So after a bit of an Instagram stalk I decided to go there with the midriff/baggy jeans. Her style’s kind of evolved over the- weeks?- but this is an Izzy interpretation bc always be urself! ~inspirational~
To be honest it’s pretty sexy these days and that’s not really my thang. In my dreams I might be able to pull off thigh-high leather boots but for now, these Rusty flats are probably more comfortable.
Movie/pizza night is happening because Kurt and I had a tough day of shooting photos. Completely kidding- we sat around talking about graduation and eating Hershey’s bars. How’s your weekend been? So much love xx
Wearing: Dress c/o Justa Local Store, shoes c/o Shellys London. I’m a cat, duh. Having a Hawaiian party of one in this beautiful dress by New Zealand label Blak. Y’all probably know of my penchant for tropical prints by now. I’m happy to report the monochrome palette and simple shape of this dress makes it the most wearable of my island-print collection by far. Paired it with cat ears for no particular reason except that it’s almost Halloween and totally justified? Oh, and “in Girl World, Halloween is the one day a year when a girl can dress up like a total slut and no other girls can say anything else about it.” Just kidding. I’m a total Cady Heron and planning on wearing false teeth and plenty of blood. Sorry about the Mean Girls references but it’s just too great an opportunity to pass up.
Fun stuff coming soon- watch this space. I would like to ramble on as I usually do, but my life has basically consisted of keeping my sanity/running my blog/surviving my last ever exam block. So far, not too shabby. Goodnight lovers! x
Wearing: Tee c/o Off Da Hook, shorts c/o Rusty.
There’s nothing sexier/simpler/better than a denim and a white tee. It’s always in style, looks great on actually everyone-ladies and gents- and is reminiscent of the best things in life: James Dean, Calvin Klein ads and Lana Del Rey lyrics. I dragged my little sister out of her teenage-cave to take some simple snaps against the only attractive wall our house has to offer. Then we ate icy poles in the sun and listened to Ariana Grande because she’s my #girlcrush and idec if she’s ridiculously mainstream. The all-American vibes of this shoot also had us talking about our impending trip to America at the end of this year… if you’re an LA, San Fran, Dallas or Austin native hit me up. Because we could eat icy poles and listen to Ariana Grande together. Or whatever.
Resisting the urge to re-state how crazy it is that I’m graduating in four weeks. Resisting. Had a beautifully sunny weekend with some beautifully sunny people, playing dress-up in my re-organised closet and not doing my 1200 word essay for Study of Religion. Sorry not sorry. How did you spend your weekend? Trying to keep as up-to-date as possible with posts for y’all because I love it and love you. Speaking of- I was thinking about a makeup tutorial for the look I’m wearing here. Thoughts? Have a super-rad Monday. Be productive and stuff. Maybe do that 1200 word essay?
Wearing: Top c/o August St, jeans c/o Riders by Lee, Finery boots c/o Justa Local Store.
Wore this for a trip to the library because if you’ve read my blog for long enough, you’ll know a) I love to read everything and b) I’m constantly overdressed. Life’s short, so I figure why not wear your party frock to buy the groceries? At least our tiny town is finally getting a creative movement… note the random painting/graffiti. Let’s just say that’s the extent of the artistic talent here….
I should be almost back from our micro-getaway because… it’s the last day of holidays. I can’t even talk about it. Hurts my heart too much. But it’s okay because these holidays have been the bomb and I’M GRADUATING IN LESS THAN 6 WEEKS. Excited/scared/excited. Can’t really decide but it’s an adventure, right?
Wearing: Playsuit c/o Ringuet, sandals c/o Lulu*s.
This post title is a double-wammy- both the name of my new favourite indie/electronic artist and a nod to the beautiful origami-esque folds and vibrant floral array on this Ringuet jumpsuit. You all know I’m a sucker for a good print and this one is beautiful. Plus- the construction on this beauty is nothing short of spectacular. The perk of having no boobs? Worrying about cleavage ain’t no thang. Actually, cleavage ain’t no thang. But, busty or not, the neoprene folds are so on-trend. I try to “put together” wearable, everyday-ish outfits here on the blog, but every now and again I get a gem like this one. Besides, my outfits lately haven’t been too interesting… bikinis and denim shorts?
Wearing: Shirt c/o Supre, Jeans c/o Missguided, Seed sneakers.
And this, ladies and gents, is my little homage to the 90s, the era of Mary-Kate and Ashley, acid wash and Gameboys. For me, anyway. I’ve always loved the idea of fashion coming full circle and lately the 90s have been back. Big time. Those elastic chokers? Plaid? Mom jeans? Well, you know me. Mom jeans > skinny jeans/any other kind of jean except maybe boyfriend. And they’re pretty 90s too.
On a side note- I’ve come to the conclusion that internet guilt is by far the worst kind of guilt. It sounds terrible but I have such an obligation to you guys, to my social media, to my emails, and this latest hiatus has been hittin’ me hard. Basically I had some personal issues which may/may not be discussed later and basically my final exam block of MY ENTIRE HIGH SCHOOL CAREER. I seriously can’t believe I’m graduating so soon and the excited/nervous feeling doesn’t compare to anything- even that flute recital I did in Year 3.
What you’ve missed- I spent a whole bunch of time pulling my hair out and drinking bad instant coffee, trying to pick up the pieces of extreme procrastination for weeks on end. Then I spent a week hanging out with friends, sleeping and catching the flu, proceeded by coming home, being ill and catching up on emails. Which leads us to here, our beautiful reunion. I filmed a super-short vlog explaining it all and it’s uploading now- plus, if you didn’t know my current favourites are now up on Ze Youtube. I’ve missed you and I’m slowly working through this mountain of emails and comments as an equally large mountain of snotty tissues arises. Ah, holidays.
Sassy schoolgirl/Lorde music video vibes from yesterday’s shoot. This is for a top-secret project to be revealed at a later date- so stay tuned. Slightly ironic that I’m rocking school-inspired pieces in my first few days of holidays (FINALLY) but these are pieces from a badass Clueless-esque school where the girls wear little plaid skirts and the boys wear leather jackets. Not like mine, where the girls wear itchy, unflattering, to-the-knee arrangements and the boys wear quick-dry sports shorts. Can I just be Cher Hollowitz already?
If you didn’t know HOLIDAYS ARE HERE and I’ve spent the past weekend wearing nail polish and thinking about things other than school. #YOLO. If you didn’t get the nail polish reference, also, we’re basically restricted from any kind of fun accessorizing whatsoever. I’ve also been wearing more than one earring in each ear AND my hair done. Just you wait until I’m out of school…
Super tired in all kinds of ways and right now is a little tough for me. I’m going through some stuff so if haven’t been as present on social media/here you guys will know why. But- I have a Youtube video uploading and plenty of posts planned. I love you all, hope you’re happy/healthy/comfy at home. xx
Wearing: Minkpink dress, Supre hat, boots via Justa Local Store.
What is UP people of the internet! About an 11/10 tired but writing this post because it’s been too long and I miss you like I miss The Carrie Diaries and American candy. That’s a lot. And what better way to re-launch my life minus exam block than a totally botty-poppin’ ensemble? I know, I know, I should probably never say that, but in all seriousness I’m actually Kim Kardashian. Minus Kanye and most other things. Except we don’t speak about Kanye because the concert is tonight and I didn’t get tickets and I’ve resorted to the Yeezus album rapping me to sleep.
Back to the important things- I’m probably more in love with this dress than I should be. The midi length is so on-point and makes the whole skin-tight thing so much better. Wearing this Supre hat I picked up at the Robina store opening/Sarah Ellen meet-and-greet I attended on Saturday. Best day ever, also, because Sarah is the bomb and the store looked freakin’ sweet. More on that later. Also didn’t Photoshop out the craters on my face because a) I didn’t want to, b) I couldn’t be bothered and c) life is hard and craters happen and today was particularly shocking….
…Which means sleep needs to happen. Badly. I love you all x 10 and will be back sooner than you can re-watch the first ep of the Carrie Diaries. And bask in the glory that is Austin Butler. Ok this is why I need sleep… Austin Butler… goodnight loves!
Why hello there! I feel like it’s been months, and some of the worst months of my life… considering the past week has been QCS/assessment overload. It’ll be over by next week and I think all my fellow year 12 students can share the excitement. I did manage, mind you, to film a lil sumthin’ sumthin’ back when I had purple hair and life was infinitely simpler (aka pre-QCS/exam block)…
I ended up calling it a “Style Q&A” since I was all out of ideas, but basically I just grabbed some questions from my Tumblr and answered them with outfit suggestions. My Youtube is looking a little sad right now, but I’ve got big plans for the holidays. As always. PS- Also included some Instagram photos as of late considering it’s been years and you probably can’t even remember what I look like anymore. Just kidding I’m the selfie queen and that’ll never happen. I’ve missed y’all! Be back soon with something fresh xo
There’s something unquestionably magical about lace when it’s done right. I’m not talking about the kind reserved for your grandmother’s curtains, or the kind reserved for the deepest, darkest corners of the lingerie department, but the delicate, feminine, timeless kind. The Sunday morning, light streaming through the open windows, crumpled white bedsheets, boyfriend sweater and that little lace bralette kind. Wow. Maybe I should have written today’s descriptive essay on lace bralettes? The fashion world seems to be pretty on point with their lace game (not at either end of that slightly scarring scale) and this crop top is no exception. After wearing it out on Friday night and being asked if it was Lover (aka the high-end lace experts) I’ve fallen in love…r. But thankfully it’s Missguided and even we peasants can afford it.
Referring to my essay anecdote earlier, today was one of the two days of hell us Queensland students have to sit through. The Queensland Core Skills test, according to teachers, determines a large chunk of your future. It’s safe to say we’ve all been under a lot of stress so my heart goes out to all QCS sitters and Year 12 students right now. One. More. Day. I’m going to prevent a ramble, have a shower and get some serious REM. So much love xo
